FEMA has announced that beginning on or after October 1, 2009, it will provide only a single paper Flood Insurance Rate Map (FIRM) and Flood Insurance Study (FIS) to each community when their maps are updated, and will convert all other distribution of maps and FIS reports for digital delivery. FEMA will continue to provide free digital map products and data to Federal, State, Tribal, and local NFIP stakeholders. Read more about this change in the Federal Register (PDF, 43KB) of October 23, 2008.
